Carotid artery-cavernous sinus fistulas (CCFs) are infrequently reported in the pediatric population, and are rarely reported in conjunction with CNS neoplasms. The authors present a 7-year-old girl with CNS choriocarcinoma who acutely developed left eye proptosis and conjunctival injection. Computed tomography angiography revealed a CCF, which was endovascularly embolized with detachable coils. There may be a direct cause-and-effect relationship between choriocarcinoma and development of CCFs.
